I am so grateful for the lifetime friendship I have gained. Not only was my mentor able to guide me through organizational strategies which drastically changed the foundation of my business and set me up for even more success, but we ended up acting as sounding boards for one another.

I have had a relationship with WeBC since the early days of my first business. I must say it has formed into a long, trusted and very supportive business relationship. I don’t know where I would be today if it wasn’t for WeBC, honestly. WeBC was the first to be there for me and really gave me the support I needed right when I needed it.

This workshop was definitely an hour well spent for me! What I got out of it was a WEALTH of information that far exceeded my expectations. I really appreciate all the links to further resources which will no doubt come in handy. Perhaps most importantly, though—you projected such enthusiasm over the phone, that you really got me excited to be part of community of women helping women succeed, so thanks again!

WeBC provided instrumental mentoring and business advice to help me grow and expand my professional services consulting business. I could not have achieved the level of success that I have achieved without their valuable support.
